Beyonce: “My biggest thing is to teach Blue not to focus on the aesthetic”

I enjoy how People Magazine keeps drawing out the excerpts from their “Most Beautiful” cover story with Beyonce. That cover was two weeks ago, and People keeps putting more and more excerpts online. They really hit the jackpot with this interview – Beyonce talked about more personal stuff than anything else, and many of you are not buying what she’s selling. AT ALL. We’ve already talked about the excerpts regarding Beyonce’s take on the “fake pregnancy” thing, how Beyonce did not feel beautiful during the “birth”, and how she breastfed for 10 weeks and then stopped. These new excerpts are about Beyonce and her hair, how Bey doesn’t want Blue Ivy to grow up focusing on “the aesthetic” and how Bey loves old mascara. Sidenote: I covered a few of these quotes before, but this piece has way more context:

Beyonce remembers first trying makeup when she was 6 years old.

“I was playing in my mother’s makeup,” she tells PEOPLE. “I had blue eye shadow and red lips, and I put crazy blush on. I looked like a clown, but I thought I was so beautiful.”

Her routine has come a long way since then – the singer often does her own makeup for appearances – but her love for the basics remains. Asked what she wears to look awake after sleepless nights spent with baby Blue, she replies, “Lip gloss – I love L’Oréal’s Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss in Coral Sands – and a little bit of blush.”

Growing up around her mom Tina Knowles’s salon, Beyoncé learned a lot about beauty. “I like to experiment [with my hair],” she says. “I love playing around with highlights or bleaching the tips. I can cut and style my own hair.”

In fact, she recently gave herself a trim, cutting two inches off her ends. “I just parted it in the middle and chh-chh-chh,” she reveals.

But it’s inner beauty that she values most – and she hopes her daughter will learn to do the same. “My biggest thing is to teach [Blue] not to focus on the aesthetic,” she says. “It’s really about who you are, and the human being, that makes you beautiful.”

The Secret of Old Mascara
Still, being a superstar means having to focus on the physical. When asked if she’s comfortable leaving the house without makeup, Beyoncé says, “Every day in my life is a part of my history, and I’ve worked really hard on my career and my life. So I make sure I wouldn’t be upset if somebody saw me.”

That means her standard lip gloss and blush, plus moisturizer – “I don’t have to spend that much time on my skin,” she admits – and sometimes, mascara.

“I’m pretty good at throwing out the expired stuff, but I hold on to my mascara for a long time,” she says. “I actually prefer old mascara. It makes your lashes thicker and longer.”

But regardless of who’s seeing her and where, the star is feeling better than ever. “I have embraced my flaws,” she says. “And I feel more confident.”

[From People]

As always, I have to ask: are you buying what Beyonce is selling? Is she wearing you down? Or with each new excerpt, are you growing more and more ambivalent towards her? I’ll tell you the truth – before Blue, before the pillowy bump, I was pretty much over Beyonce. She was annoying the hell out of me. But ever since the bump and the baby, she’s just trying so hard, and it really does seem like she’s trying to be more interesting. So… while I don’t believe all of the stuff she’s shilling, I like that she’s trying.

Also – Jay-Z has a new interview about his daughter. Jay appeared on last night’s Oprah’s Master Class: Special Edition, and he talked about how he is as a parent. Jay- said: “I imagine I’ll take things I learned from my mom and things I’ve learned from raising my nephews and apply that… Then at the end of the day, I just know I’ll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever… Everyone imagines they’ll be a great dad until their [kids are] teenagers. [They say], ‘Get away from me, Dad. You’re embarrassing me.’” I think Blue Ivy will probably be a spoiled kid too, but I think it will be a different kind of “spoiled celebrity kid” than we’re used to seeing. Blue won’t be a little Suri Cruise or a Willow Smith. Blue is going to break the mold of what we know about celebrity children, mark my words.

Here’s a new photo from Beyonce’s Tumblr. Girl got a new wig! She wanted to show it off.

    she is beautiful natural..

    but someone should tell her that old mascara will give you an eye infection. I hope she is not starting a terrible trend.

    • Danziger says:

      What, are my eyes special then? I’m kind of horribly lousy at throwing out my old mascara. Because I’m gross like that. I sleep with it too at times when I’m too sh-tfaced and can’t be arsed with removing my makeup. Have done so for years. No eye-infection. While it’s advisable to discard your past expiration date makeup, expired makeup really doesn’t do all these horrible things make-up sellers would like you to think they do.

      • Red Granny says:

        Like your attidude, girl!

        Our (grand-)mothers used to spit on their mascaras and no one died because of it. So my guess is, that this kind of short expiration date is some kind of industry BS to trick you into buying stuff more often then you actually need.

      • Kimbob says:

        You GO GIRL!!! At LAST, it’s so refreshing to read others are guilty of what I’m guilty of. YES, I’m an unabashadly guilty woman that just LURVES her old mascara. And, …I’ve yet to get an eye infection also.

        But also, I really wonder if I’m a “hoarder” when it comes to makeup. Just yesterday I looked in a drawer of mine in another room & came across “a stash” of makeup that I bought about a month ago that I haven’t even touched yet. It gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling…I’m SERIOUS! I really wonder…WHY am I like that. What is it about women and their old mascara? I guess I find it true, as well, that the old mascara does seem to perform better than a newly-opened tube…hahaha!

        So…I’d just like to say that the ONLY CORRECT AND HONEST thing Bey said in that interview was the thingy about the OLD MASCARA….and THAT’S ALL!!!

        Oh, and PUHLEEEZ, PUHLEEZ, PUHLEEZ….she wants to impart to Blue to ‘not focus on the aesthetic.’ I mean…OH COME ON BEY….that’s all YOU EVER FOCUSED ON…was the AESTHETIC. Fashion, jewelry, hair, skin….give me an effin’ BREAK…that’s all there IS to Bey, and that’s all. It really chaps my ass when celebrities totally LIE in interviews…and they think we buy it all…what a FARCE!

        I’m just really glad to know the Celebitchy bloggers aren’t lapping up every morsel that she gives….LOL! Chalk one point up for us! You have to get up VERY EARLY in the morning to “get one by” on us.

      • Sisi says:

        Hahaha! Kimbob, Im like that too.

        Also when I was cleaning out my closet a couple of weeks ago and sorted all my make-up in boxes (seriously… a box filled with lipgloss, one with eyeshadow, one with nailpolish, it’s kinda gross how much I bought) I even found make-up that was over 10 years old…

      • Lisa says:

        Just yesterday, I bought new makeup for the first time in a year. I only buy it when it runs out or the mascara starts clumping. Never had an eye infection as a result of using old makeup!

    • Dani says:

      While I also agree that old mascara use probably won’t result in an eye infection I do have to question who does this that doesn’t have to? It’s a clumpy mess. Mascara is one of the few makeup products that I do throw out and replace on a regular basis.

  2. Bite me aka aniston says:

    That cover is not selling cant wait to get the final numbers … Anyways am sure mr and mrs camel will raise a well behave child of privilege with a sterling personality

    • AuntJemimah says:

      The camel reference is in regards to Jay Zs lips? I find that quite offensive. And frankly we (my friend whos with me now and I) feel its a little racist. Most people of African origin have thicker lips than white folk, ok. What do you call people with rounded hips then? Honestly, I wouldnt dream of calling a person a name based on a phyiscal feature that is clearly just a common characteristic of their race. Imagine if I called you an animal name based on the shape of your nose, or bottom?

      Could the website please please put a filter against the word camel given the hateful context in which it is being used.

      • Nicole says:

        @ AuntJemimah Camel is not a racist term. Read most of the comments on “urban” blogs. I am black myself and those camel comments started from the “black” blogs.

      • Pia says:

        Oh please with the racism thing… it is not about his lips. It is because he looks like Joe Camel. Black, white, yellow, orange, purple, whatever… his face is shaped the way it is, and it reminds some folks of Joe Camel. I don’t see how it is any different than calling Lindsay Lohan “duck lips”, except that they were something she paid for.

      • crtb says:

        Girlfriend – you must not read Mediatakeout (which just happend to be a black website)because that is all they call JayZ. It isn’t kind, but racist? No!

    • Tiffany says:

      Yeah, the camel comment was totally racist. Not appreciated at all.

      • Lboogi says:

        Like Pia said, it’s about his overall look not his lips. As a black person I’m more offended that you would automatically go to the lip thing. Do a google search of a side by side pic of Jay and Joe Camel and then come back and tell me they look nothing alike!

  3. Tiffany27 says:

    “I’ll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever”

    And in a related story, the sky is blue.

  4. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    lololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololololol!

    Bitch, please!

  5. Cherry says:

    She looks like Shakira in the wig-pic.

  6. backwards says:

    Blue is going to break the mold of what we know about celebrity children, mark my words.

    What does this even mean?

    • Kimbob says:

      Really….what the hell DOES that mean??!! Just more crap spewing from JayZ’s mouth. That statement he said means absolutely nothing. I think JayZ thinks it sounds pretty sensational coming out of his mouth. Hell, to believe him and Bey, one would almost have to swallow “the fact” that JayZ and Bey think Blue Ivy is the second coming of the Messiah! LOL!

      I mean, seriously, no one should take ANYTHING JayZ says at face value….WHY? Well, he’s an ex-crack dealer, and he’s admitted that he got into the music biz because he knew in the long run that it would be more LUCRATIVE, and that he wouldn’t die by getting shot to death by rival gangs/dealers.

      It’s always helpful to Google or Wiki any particular celeb that’s grabbing recent headlines. After all, who in the HELL would have ANY RESPECT FOR A CRACK DEALER, or for that matter, and EX-CRACK DEALER??!!

      At the end of the day, when the water is all boiled out, all JayZ is, is A THUG…albeit a rich thug, and that’s all.

    • ZZZ says:

      Let’s hope he didn’t mean they broke the mold that she came out of…..Hope they didn’t kill the surrogate!

  7. brin says:

    The blue straws are an aesthetically nice touch.

  8. SleepyJane says:

    Congrats to them on their baby. But, please Beyonce, shut up about the kid/pregnancy already.

    • jaye says:

      It’s not like she’s just waxing philosophical about her child. Interviewers are ASKING about her. And if there’s anything new moms love talking about, its their babies. Cut the woman a little slack. Folks on here at like Beyonce’s is evil incarnate. She gets the same treatment here that Angelina Jolie gets in a few of those gossip rags. It’s silly. Aside from having the personality of a wet rag, Beyonce is harmless.

  9. truthSF says:

    Hey NotHova, what about taking what u learned from raising ur son? Or does he not matter?!

  10. Marjalane says:

    No, I’m not buying what she’s trying to sell. In fact, I don’t even want to go in the store- I’m crossing the street to get away from her B.S.. I’m beginning to think old Bey has lost her friggin’ mind; How stupid does she think that the people who actually bother to read about her, are? It’s all rather insulting.

  11. Eleonor says:

    Yes and that’s why she got a nose job.

  12. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    And she learned a new word. Aesthetic!

    Look for her to throw that word around for the next month or two. Intelligent be Beyonce!

    • Meanchick says:

      LOL! I ws thinking the same thing! She learned a new word and now we’ll hear it over and over again for a while! The way you teach your kids NOT to focus on looks alone is to show them that you don’t. Kids learn what they see from you not what you say to them and I cannot see Bey showing Blue not to put looks at the top of the priority list, when Bey does it. She needs wigs and booty pants, vag thrusting and wardrobe malfunctions onstage because without those, you’d hear pretty quickly that her singing is not that great.

      • TheOriginalVictoria says:

        ALL OF THIS!

        Her career is based on confusing young chicks about their place in the world. It’s all about money, status, and keeping your man from cheating on you with another chick and partying.

        And that’s all fine as long as you stay in your lane and don’t act like you are on some save the world/feminist shit. Because I do declare that I have never listened to a Beyonce song (and let’s be clear that I do like a lot of her songs) and walked away thinking she was bringing us to another level of consciousness. So she needs to start by being honest with herself, cause she ain’t teaching Blue a damn thing besides weave management, crappy dressing, and and p popping.

        All the Nannies will do the rest.

      • Kimbob says:

        Ooooooohhhh….@Meanchick and @TheOriginalVictoria….you two are my NEW HEROS, the BOTH of you!!!

      • Miffy says:

        EXHIBIT A: (Sorry, I just want everyone to laugh at this as hard as I did) In Beyonce’s Who Run The World video thing, the line where she’s talking about raising a glass to college grads while rolling around in dirt, wiggling her arse in the air. FEMINISM!!!! Aesthetic!!

        Maybe she doesn’t know what aesthetic actually means?

  13. Eric says:

    old mascara can result in infection and blindness. This woman is beyond stupid.
    Her constant attempts to sound genuine, come across as desperate and fake.
    Did she say that
    “Everyday in her life is part of her history?” that explains everything.

  14. Alexis says:

    I’m tired of this overrated fake bi^&h.

  15. DavidBowie says:

    How about they teach their kid not to focus on the materialistic along with the aesthetic? Pfft.

  16. Amy says:

    I’m tired of her. I’m tired of her trying to convince me of anything. I’m tired of her trying to seem relatable. After years of coming off as aloof and fiercely private, this all just seems so fake and it’s not doing her any favors. In fact, I like her even less.

  17. FOREVER says:

    Pls shut the f–k up you fake bitch, in that top pics she has a lace front wig on so it’s not all natural, nose job , boob job, skin bleach. She wears a wig day in day out. Her stans swear with thier life she has long hair, yet we never see it without a pony at the back. B, your star is fading stop pimping blue.

  18. Cait says:

    God,I still can’t believe they named that poor child ‘Blue’. I had a childhood dog named the same thing.

  19. Missy Mara says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Sure, they focus on their child’s inner beauty. Because these two are keepin’ it real y’all.

  20. Flim says:

    Uh-oh, Bey–your Paltrow is showing!

  21. Tiffany says:

    ‘Aesthetic’. That is a word that was used and in proper context by Beyonce. Are we sure? Just saying.

  22. Asli says:

    Someone PLEASE expose her lies. It’s all over the web but no one’s really talking about it. Ugh. I did some researc because I was starting to wonder why I was warming up to her. I’m on my phone now so I can’t link it but there’s this woman, Aisha, whom Beyonce, J. Simpson, Madonna and SONY have been screwing over. They hacked into her computer and stole her Copyright Catalogue, which is illegal, and the government wouldn’t do anything about it eventhough she had proof. If that doesn’t tell you money rules I don’t know what will. She has a website btw. Beyonce (and Daddy Matthew) have stolen from other artists, dead people, songwriters, old managers, you name it. She’s despicable.

    • Cherry says:

      Please explain what you mean by this, Asli. What did Beyonce, J. Simpson, Madonna and SONY do with this woman ‘Aisha”s Copyright Catalogue? You mean she had written music and they stole it from her?

      • Asli says:

        Yeah, hacked her computer. She’s written all about it on her website. I’ll put up the link when I get home. I think Jessica stole the fashion line she has. Anyone ever wonder how she all of a sudden had a clothing empire? She went from a C-B lister to that? Suspicious. And then all sorts of crap with Beyonce – music stealing. And something with Madonna and Kaballah. Apparently they sent a stalker after Aisha. Some creepy stuff. It’ll make more sense when you read it.

    • TheOriginalVictoria says:

      Yes she is on the Judiciary report!

      I have listened to that girls work and she tells NO LIES. She has every copy right document on file and they have hacked her dozens of times!

      I listened to her version of World Wide Woman copyrighted years before Bey did it and there are similarities. She can’t sing for shit but she is an artist and has great ideas. Bey even stole her video treatments and Madonna had her computers bugged!

      Destiny’s Rehab covered this years ago.

      • Asli says:

        That’s the one! I feel soooooooo bad for her. Look at all the billions of dollars those people have made off of her over the years. She didn’t get one single dime. These people are the scum of the Earth. Jessica Simpsons company makes 700 million dollars a year on her designs! Beyonce and Co. are thieves and Madonna is straight up crazy. It might seem hard to believe but it’s ALL true. She has documents etc. to prove it.

  23. Meanchick says:

    Diamond necklace strewn through her mouth? Yeah, Blue is going to be a really normal kid.

  24. Dibba says:

    I have zero interest in her so no opinions on this

  25. Neelyo says:

    “My biggest thing is to teach [Blue] not to focus on the aesthetic”

    Translation: The kid looks more like Jay-Z than her.

  26. Waldemar says:

    she replies, “Lip gloss – I love L’Oréal’s Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss in Coral Sands

    What woman does that, citing the whole name of a lip gloss you use, unless you are shilling it??

    I wonder if that is why she put up her Tumblr. Seeing a lot of accessories passing by lately.

  27. Nessa says:

    Please, someone make it stop with this woman. She seriously is positioning herself as the most annoying celebrity ever. Her people have to tell her to back off… she is completely ruining her whole persona with this BS.

  28. Lizzie says:

    So she is going to be one of those hypocritical parents who says “Do as I say, not as I do.” Does her own hair and make up – bull! She is one of the biggest divas in Hollywood – along with Mariah and JLo – none of whom are attractive once they open their mouths!

    • Courtney says:

      @Lizzie Mariah’s by no means a hipocryte sye’s actually one of the most honest celebs of the modern era. when your asked questions in an interview why lie when the truth will eventually come out. there’s a difference between complainin and being honest try having a pregnancy like Mariah’s and see how you like it.

  29. mar says:

    Beyonce, queen of wigs and extensions, really is not fooling me with this “beauty on the inside ” crap. She is so caught up in her looks, so these comments are very silly to me.

  30. Lisa says:

    She’s making a huge mistake. Looks are everything.

  31. Mingy says:

    How I loathe this woman..
    You guys already said what I’m thinking about this bullsh*t spewing dumbass, so I’m good..feels so good to read these comments!!!

  32. kristiner says:

    “I think Blue Ivy will probably be a spoiled kid too, but I think it will be a different kind of “spoiled celebrity kid” than we’re used to seeing. Blue won’t be a little Suri Cruise or a Willow Smith. Blue is going to break the mold of what we know about celebrity children, mark my words.”

    How in the WORLD could Blue outshine Her Royal Suriness and Queen Willow on celebrity kids being too in the media.

    I can’t imagine Blue making them seem like a cheap reality star.

  33. jover says:

    Thank you kimbob, marjalane, originialvictoria et al. – as an old school rocker i was meh to this chick and her synthetic dance pop, but she has now crossed the line to the most insufferable air thieving celebutard EVER. Everyone on this site, and others, knows she has more people than are in a US marine battalion writing, guiding, chaperoning her though life – You can just imagine someone writing on a blackboard the word for today is “aesthetic” bouncy. BUt this is what happens when you are a robotized product, you become a caricature of a human being – does bouncy even have genuinely authentic emotions, or does her management battalion instruct her in the faux art of emoting, also?

    • TheOriginalVictoria says:

      Whenever the state of current pop music depresses me, I just slip on Seabird, Phyllis Hyman, Lizzie West, Laura Izibor, or Dave Matthews. Then all is right in my world again.

      I put Paula Abdul’s Forever Your Girl and Spellbound againt Bey’s entire discography. I listen to those albums at least twice a month. Paula had a weak voice but they knew how to work it and her songs are AMAZING as was her choreography.

    • Kimbob says:

      @jover, thanks for the shout-out!

  34. lucy2 says:

    Yeah, good luck with that – all she focuses on is the aesthetic!

  35. dorothy says:

    Your 15 mins. are up…go away now, shoo.

  36. Leticia says:

    she talks a lot about her hair and her pregnancy. wonder why.

  37. daubie says:

    I’m not the hugest Beyonce fan, I find her quite boring and lacking personality but I respect her talent. And I have no comment on whether she gave birth or not because like everyone outside of immediate family I don’t actually know (but never let facts get on the way of a good story right). But the hysteria on here that she is ‘fake and ‘lame’ and that her 15 minutes are up… I mean, seriously?
    Unlike a lot of other people regularly spoken about in fawning tones on this site she has an actual skill that she’s been working hard at for the last 15 years. She isn’t a crackhead alcoholic, and she’s been with the same guy for the last 10 years. She gave ONE in-depth interview about, with People drip releasing different excerpts from it hence the seemingly constant coverage. I don’t have a problem with her saying she doesn’t want her child to obsessed with looks and I’m confused as to why everyone else is.
    Maybe I’m missing something but people like her, Gwyneth, Kristen Stewart, etc, are just meh to me. Attractive women, who are good at what they do, keep themselves to themselves and seem fairly harmless. I get that this is a bitchy, gossipy website and I have definitely had more than a few laughs at the comments, but I really am failing to see why she attracts this much vitriol. Other then what people think they know about her.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I hear where you’re coming from but the scenario you’re describing is really not just specific to Beyonce. Extreme fan-dom and extreme celeb-hate are always rampant on gossip blogs. I don’t actively hate any celeb (except maybe Mel Gibson and a few others who have proven themselves to be pretty terrible) nor am I a raging fan of any celeb. *shrugs* I don’t see the Beyonce vitriol as being any different than any other nastiness/criticism that is directed to other celebs….

      • daubie says:

        I understand what you mean but when i compare the comments left under a beyonce story compared to people like say LeAnn Rimes seem to have a lot more heartfelt rage. I mean, insuinating that the child will be hideous cause Jay Z’s the father???
        Maybe i’m misunderstanding peoples points of view but it all seems to stem from the whole baby/pillow thing, which again nobody actually knows is true. If you remove that she’s just another crazy celeb in hollyweird who gave birth and is being typically gushing. But then again like you i don’t actively love/hate any celeb, and i tend to take anyone word that comes out of celebrities mouths as well as gossip blogs like this, with a pinch of salt.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        re: taking with a grain of salt- ITA with that. Some of the stories are completely ridiculous but even more absurd is the speculation/people talking as if they know the celebs personally. That used to really irritate me but now I’m over it and take it for what it is-people having fun and letting off some steam, sometimes at the expense of good taste and social grace. The Leanne Rhimes threads are different because so many of Brandi’s friends are on this blog, blowing up the LR/BG posts. As far as the stuff about Jay Z- personally, I avoid commenting on people’s physical appearance because I just think it’s kind of mean-spirited. Eh…Gossip ya know? Brings out a lot of crazies :)

  38. skipper says:

    The reason that she is going to teach her daughter this lesson is because she is the child of Jay Z. I just don’t think it is possible that she will grow up to be an attractive girl at all so she can’t follow in her mother’s beautiful footsteps.

    Can you imagine Jay Z’s face coming at yours for a kiss every night? Gross.

    • catt says:

      She doesn’t even know how to use the word aesthetic right /grammatically.
      1. pertaining to a sense of the beautiful or to the science of aesthetics.
      2.
      having a sense of the beautiful; characterized by a love of beauty.
      3.
      pertaining to, involving, or concerned with pure emotion and sensation as opposed to pure intellectuality.
      Plus she is also an idiot not to want to impart this to her daughter.
      What an ass.

  41. Mew says:

    It’s insane how much her skin color varies from “laid back just happened” pics to those where she’s all made up. And she looks so much better with natural darker skin.

  42. Bella says:

    Omg… what a joke ,what she turns out to look like him?Plastic surgery ,hello!
    Little Blue Jay-z that what we all should call her

  43. Bella says:

    She is nice looking lady…thats it.Not most beautiful in the world!!!

  44. the original bellaluna says:

    Yeah, right. *snickersnortguffaw*

  45. Bex says:

    Assuming her intention was to teach Blue not to focus on appearances, here’s the big truth that most people only realize once their kids are half grown:

    Kids don’t care what you say, only what you do.

    If you’re materialistic, so will your kids be. If you’re appearance-focused, your children will have that tendency as well.

    If she wants to teach her kid to view the world in a certain way, she’s going to have to reflect that in her own behavior.

  46. ldel says:

    ‘aesthetic’

    surprised she knew the word, not sure it’s applied correctly here…but she gave it a shot.

    sleazy looking wig pic.

  47. original kate says:

    she looks better with less makeup.

    • Emily says:

      I agree, I think that top photo is the best I’ve ever seen her.

      I find that mascara is the best about a month after I’ve opened it. It gets a little thicker or something, so my lashes look longer and thicker. But I usually use the whole thing way before the expiry date anyhow.

  48. Kim says:

    I’m surprised nobody’s mentioned the fact she’s winning a journalism award for her “article” in Essence last year. It’s a poorly written account of her 9-month, multi-country vacation, mostly about how she found out pizza tastes good and how her mom is her role model…gripping stuff.

    I don’t think she understands the meaning of the word “aesthetic”. I believe she means “material”.

  52. Howard Stern airs Beyoncé’s raw, unedited live performance of “If I Were a Boy” on “Today” show. Unsurprisingly, it’s shockingly bad.

    Howard: Just get the board feed. If someone off key. It’s pretty funny. This is Beyonce form the Today Show. It’s always funny.

    Robin: So she’s lip syncing?

    Howard: Yeah, basically. But you know she’s singing along with it. Having a hard time I guess. Isn’t a good voice.


    Repost from XXXX – It’s like a cat set on fire. Now that’s funny (sad) funny.

    She should stop using words she doesn’t know the meaning of. For one thing, aesthetic doesn’t refer to human beings. In an effort to seem educated, she showed how under-educated she is. She meant she didn’t want that homely little Jay-z look-alike kid of hers to focus on the superficial (i.e. outer beauty), and I can sure see why. The Aesthetes, by the by, were an ancient group probably from Greece, who believed that focusing all your concentration on the beauty of life ( curves of a leaf, a ripple of water) was the way to achieve enlightenment, plus you could apply the principles to architecture.

    Has anyone seen Bownce elephant size body in that fishnet dress last night at the Met Gala. My God, does she own a mirror, it looks like an elephant walking with a net thrown over it’s backside…

    I mentioned that she’s winning a journalism award in another post earlier, she uses improper grammar, has vocabulary of a 10 year child, and does not understand what writing is, but wins an award for writing, and insult to journalism and writers who can actually write.
    She probably heard word aesthetic from her dentist, it’s the most overused word in dentistry. I think the word she was looking for was superficial, but used aesthetic instead, due to her stupidity and lack of vocabulary.

    Once bey learns what that means and not pretend she’s actually that sort of person.. this might work.
